Dunlop is the SP Sport Maxx Jaguar's tyre of choice for XFR
Dunlop has been chosen to provide the especially high performance tyre Dunlop SP Sport Maxx for both the XFR and the XKR by car maker Jaguar. The latest additions to the Jaguar line up feature a 375 kW/510 hp supercharged engine and acceleration of 4.8 seconds from 0-100 km/h.
When taking into consideration the overall performance of the cars, the Dunlop tyre's high quality handling and gripping will be an important feature. It's dry handling, luxury sport vehicle applicability and it's availability in sizes for tuned cars are all noted for.
The tyre's "Multi Radius Tread" technology is the feature that has made Dunlop Particularly proud. This technology allows for the accurate calculation of the tread surface. The technology has been utilised for the manufacturer?s exclusive supply of the German Touring Car Championship. The SP Sport Maxx makes the company?s position in the luxury sport performance segment stronger, taking on the mantel from its successful predecessor, SP Sport 9000.
"Consumers benefit not only from Dunlop's considerable investment in research and development but also from its extensive racing experience", said Frederick Schilling, Dunlop brand director Europe, Middle East and Africa. "The SP Sport Maxx enables drivers to experience pure racing technology every day".
